The plots of these shows are completely different. Chuuibyou features teenagers whereas Samurai has adult characters. However, both shows are delusional people trying to function in modern society. They often do embarassing things and get into trouble because of these delusions. Also, both shows feature a straight man character that tries to help out the delusional character. Both shows are light hearted and include a lot of comedy.

Chuuibyou has better animation and has some fantasy action scenes that take place in the character's head. Samurai is more dialogue heavy and doesn't have the action scenes, but if you like humorous anime about character with delusions then you should try either of these anime.

If you are enjoying the superhero antics of Masayoshi Hazama, you should check out Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!  And if you are enjoying Takanashi's insistence of resistance to the Dark Forces, you should check out Hazama's superhero Samurai Flamenco.  Both anime feature characters who are out to save/improve the world using extra-ordinary methods.  In Chuunibyou, Rikka Takanashi is trying to save the world from the dark forces which only a special privileged few know exist.

Both Taka and Hazama are zealous (over-zealous even!) in their beliefs, and do not care what the rest of the world thinks of their method of choice in defeating evil. Taka uses custom-rigged everyday items endowed with supernatural forces to fight, while Hazama dresses up in his superhero costume to improve society and punish and admonish rule-breakers.

Both have a more-or-less "straight" man buddy to accompany them and ground them to reality, when their tendency is to take flight into their own private universes.  Taka's friend is a school buddy and neighbor Yuuta Togashi and Hazama has a cop friend, Hidenoro Goto, who knows his secret identity.

If you enjoy buddy anime, and want to see age old fight of good versus evil played out with a new batch of heroes, check out either of these similarly themed shows.

Well, honestly, there are two reasons: they're both from Kyoto Animation, and they're full of MOE!!  But seriously, both series are the type that are just filled with warm feelings that make you laugh (sometimes to the point of crying) and they also make you want to hug somebody or something and cuddle. I'm a guy, by the way....

Both animes have male protagonist dealing with weird, awkward, "unique" female characters.  Both animes are romance, comedy that are really fun to watch (they also have a big ending with a lot of drama).  I liked both and I feel like if you liked one you'll definitely like the other.  Both are must watch animes if you lke the over the top female characters that drive the male characters crazy.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT

Kodaka, Sena, Yozora and the rest of the Neighbors Club are back, and continue on their quest to learn what it’s like to make friends. There’s never a dull day for the gang, whether they’re debating the merits of “family friendly” yaoi anime, having a soda party or even heading to the amusement park. And whether Kodaka is enduring an especially awkward bath session with Pegasus or hosting Maria for an overnight sleepover, one thing’s for sure: he and the Neighbors Club are in for plenty of misadventures!

Haganai NEXT and Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai are similar because of their socially awkward characters who are just outright hilarious. The main charcters in these two series are just entering the world of high school and are attempting to find ways to find friends and abandon their socially awkward history. In the process of doing so, they come across a set of girls who are even more awkward then themselves and eventually form a club with them where we witness a load of hilarious events.

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

The ordinary becomes extraordinary, as our protagonist Mahiro Yasaka – an average high school student – suddenly encounters a Nyarlathotep: a formless Cthulhu deity of chaos, who decides to take form as a silver-haired human-like alien. This Nyarlathotep – aptly named Nyarko – may seem like a normal gal, but there’s much more to her than meets the eye! In their encounters together, she ends up saving Mahiro's life, inextricably tying their lives together…

Both anime are rare examples of the scenario where the guy beats the girls for misbehaving (it's usually just a knock on the head) rather than the other way around (which is so very common in shounen manga and anime).
